He that governs leads the blind, but he that
teaches gives them eyes.
We inherited our positions as students
in this college community from those who
came before. We have dug our roots
deeply into its soil as young saplings and
were nourished and grew to the stateliness
of seniors. Those things which we
have begun will yet remain for others
to continue. Our predecessors and profes-
sors pointed the way for us and now as
we pass through the portals of this college
into the world; it will be ours to say,
"Dirego" I point the way, and translate
it in our unique ways.
JOHN T. McNULTY
A Senior bids farewell
These things I wish for you for our friendships' sake
A sunburnt thatch, a door to [ace the sun
At westering, the noise of homing rooks;
A kind, old lazy chair, a courtly cat
To rub against your knees;
Shelves of well chosen books;
I wish you friends whose wisdom makes than kind,
Well-leisured friends to share your evening's peace,
Friends who can season knowledge with a laugh;
A hedge of lavender, a patch of thyme,
With sage and marjoram and rosemary,
A damask rosebush and a hive of bees,
And callages that hold tin 1 morning's dew,
A black bird in the orchard boughs - all these,
And God bless you.
WOO Years of Irish Poetry
We find it fitting to dedicate this page to the memory of John Fitzgerald
Kennedy, not only bcacuse of the magnanimous position which he occupied in
our world, but because of the lesson we have learned through his passing —
the necessity of brotherhood and peace. Much has been revealed to us during our
college life, but this, significant of our senior year, we did not learn from books;
but rather, from an unjust act. What greater tribute can we now pay to this man
and to this world but to carry on his spirit of universal brotherhood and peace.
In this way only, can justice of any sort be rendered.
JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY
To the Class of 1964:
Another year has slipped away and another
class has completed the four years of college.
You are now ready for your life's work as
teachers of the youth of our country. You begin
at a time of great need. All schools are filled to
capacity and thousands more must be built as soon
as possible. Our dynamic world also demands
changes in the methods and programs of educating
pupils from their initial school experiences to
adulthood. You will not only be a part of this but
I hope you will be among the leaders in the field.
I ask God to help you to meet this challenge.

Experience is regarded as a source of knowledge. It is
also spoken of as containing what is known. Sometimes it
is identified with sense-perception; sometimes it involves
more — memory and the activity of the imagination. Some-
times it includes thoughts, feelings, and desires as well, all
the contents of consciousness, every phase of mental life.
Experience may connote something which is private or
public, subjective or objective — something which no man
can share with another. Experience is said to be also that
which makes a man expert in an art or in a sphere of
practical activity. A man is better able to do or make that
which he has much experience in doing or making. He
is better able to judge what should be undertaken or
what has been accomplished by others as well as by him-
self. Ultimately, experience is something to be enjoyed for
its own sake, serving no end beyond itself unless it be the
enrichment of life by the widest variety of experience.

North Adams State College opened its 1963-64 bas

Waterbury with 16. Four other
fellows hit double figures.
North Adams had to come
from behind to win, trailing
throughout the first half until
with about a minute left to play
back-to-back baskets by Pietras
and Goodnow sent the Mohawks
to the dressing room, leading
by one, 36-35.
Midway in the second half,
the Mohawks got real hot for
the first time and on a 10-
point chain ran the count from
44-42 to 54-42. Baskets by Good-
now and Carroll a short time
later gave the Mohawks their
biggest spread, 58-45.
Waterbury came back strong
in the closing minutes and with
1.47 left had cut the margin to
three 71-68. CarrolFs hoop and
two foul shots by Zoltek gave the
home five breathing room in
the closing seconds.

Eight-Year $6.16 M illion Program
for College Expansion Outlined
Campus to Crow to 30 Acres,
Enrollment Near 1.200 Seen
By EDWIN MATESKY
Dr. John Gillespie, director of state colleges in Massa-
chusetts, last night outlined an eight-year, $6.16 million
expansion program for North Adams State College to
some 50 persons gathered for a meeting of the Chamber
of Commerce of Greater North Adams.
The estimated $6.16 million cost is broken into $5.38
million for construction, $280,000 for planning and $500,-
000 for land purchase costs
if the building would substan-
tially increase enrollment, he
"Thus the federal government, has been indefatigable in promot
Dr. Gillespie said he hoped
the boiler plant could go up this
year, the women's dormitory
next year and a building every
year thereafter until the master
plan, which he also called the
"first phase," is comolete.
Boiler Plant First
Early in the discussion Dr.
Gillespie said "everything de-
pends on the boiler plant — the
focal point of importance. Thanks
to Rep. (Roger A.) Sala, who
As explained by Dr. Gillespie,
with the aid of maps, by 1971
the college campus would be
increased from its present five
acres to 30 acres and the stu^
dent enrollment from the pres-
ent 600 to between 950 and 1,200.
If the plan is realized the cam-
pus' new boundaries would be
Blackinton Street on the north;
and, approximately, the Bond
Street line on the south; Ash-
land Street on the west and
Church Street on the east.
And that's only the first phase.
After that, Dr. Gillespie explain-
ed as the population of high
school graduates increases over
the years so, too, will it be neces-
sary to further expand the col-
It is likely the college would
expand to the west, toward the
Boston & Albany and Boston &
Maine Railroad tracks which, he
said, would have to be relocated.
Someone in the audience asked
if any thought had been given
to relocating the college on land
which wouldn't have to be con-
No, said Dr. Gillespie, if the
college were to be relocated it
would be relocated out of North
Adams. There is too much of
an investment already at the
present site, he added, mention-
ing the recently-built $1.5 mil-
lion gymnasium and classroom
"It's either here or nowhere,"
He emphasized at the begin-
ning of his 90-minute presenta-
tion that the Master Plan "is
not final and is subject to mod-
ification as time goes on."
Assisting Dr. Gillespie with
